Iluvdodge9‘s mom has a certain way with animals. The Canadian farmer noticed a wild raven perched on their fence cawing for an hour.

Upon further investigation, it became clear that the intelligent bird was calling out in pain from the multiple porcupine quills stuck in its face. It almost seemed to be asking for human assistance.

Amazingly, mom didn’t hesitate at all to pull the quills out, one by one. The raven seemed to call out in pain each time she pulled a quill, just like a small child crying from a splinter. 

Now, the video has gone viral, garnering over a quarter million views
